The inaugural SSG Long Table Lunch took place last Sunday on the College Plaza. A fine afternoon was had by all as guests enjoyed their lunch banquets to the sounds of Scott Sullivan who provided a great musical backdrop. College Principal, Mr Chris Mayes spoke of the sporting changes coming in 2019 and some exciting plans for Curlew Park and Paul Neil was on hand to take some great photos.

The day was also an opportunity for the SSG to formally thank Mr David Row, recently retired Canteen Convenor. David provided many years of service to the College and it was our pleasure to have David and his wife Christine as our guests for the day. Mr Mayes also announced a new service award this year, the David Row Award, to recognise the volunteer efforts of a parent during the year.

The day would not have been possible without our wonderful sponsors and raffle prize donors.
